Mountford ‘Estate’ Waipara Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 03-Nov-2012
Deep hearted garnet-hued ruby-red colour. Elegant and finely proportioned on nose, the aromas of soft red berry fruits are intertwined harmoniously with dried herb, oak cedar, spices and secondary undergrowth elements. Full-bodied, soft, gently expressed flavours of savoury red berry fruits and dried herbs build to form a deep core. The tannins grow to show a firmness of structure, and are bolstered by underlying alcoholic power. There is a tightness to the palate, which reveals spicy oak, nuts and cedar elements on the finish. This is a firmly held Pinot Noir with good balance of fruit and oak which will develop over 6-8 years. The wine was aged 18 months in 50% new French oak barrels. 18.0-/20 Oct 2012 RRP $60.00
